one of the striking pictures

some times I visit bbc's day in pictures as it really gives some thousands of words!

today to my surprise I saw this:

This is what is written under it:
Former Kurdish "peshmerga" militiamen gather in the Iraqi town of Suleimaniya to collect payment for their retirement

- a good election campaign by the PUK
- does this suggest that they deserve it or not?
- oh I adore the head-turbans (or whatever is called)

We have phone calls from/to Kurdistan and they remind us of the tents which were up in the 1992 elections for campaigning for each lists candidates! the atmosphere is so exciting and emotional although it is obvious who wins in most of the elections, it is just a matter of how much vote the others can get!
